Seems like someone needs to tell the colorist that Simon's gun is real and not a construct. (how did they let that get past editorial??)

Also, if he's right-handed, why does he wear the gun on his left leg?

Can we just call Baz a Mary-Sue and get it over with? First he has "Emerald Sight" and now he can cure [albeit temporarily] Red Lanterns without a Blue Ring.

They're really trying to push the "Simon Baz is special" narrative. That's not going to make people warm up to him.

And why is he using it with his left hand on the cover?

But that has worked so well for Kyle so far

Thought the issue was good, however I'm kinda mad that they never explored these powers before with one of the other four earth lanterns. Simon is supposed to be the only one that can tap into these powers??

Found this one pretty jarring. While not bad, I'm sure it could have been better. Not sure which bothered me more, the pacing or the art. I seem to like Jessica more than Simon though. It used to be the other way around.

Not surprising, since they seem to have changed Simon's personality for this series, making him kind of a jerk.

Yes, clearly the goal is to get us to like Jessica, so making Simon an ass helps make that goal easier to achieve.

The issue was very good. The way Simon was handling Bleez was impressive. And the way Jessica and Simon were confronting each other was impressive. Hopefully, Simon and Bleez will have more interaction in the future.

Finally got around to reading this and it was...not good. The coloring mistake on Baz's gun was pretty blatant and the entire thing with his ring healing Bleez was a head scratcher. The ridiculous number of artists involved in the issue didn't help either.

2/5.

Terrible issue. I agree with everyone who are shaking their heads on the plot incongruities. What Baz did to Bleez is clearly something only the Blues have demonstrated. It's kind of their forte.

So it seems the writers are just crapping on what Geoff Johns has established? Is that what is going on here? Or are we seeing some kind of sad trend where eventually all the lanterns can manifest each others respective abilities.

<Simon Baz: You now have unlocked --> Emerald Puke>

(cause ya'know, the Red lanterns have that napalm vomit...) >_>
